Year 6 Joshua Yeldham-inspired Drawing Activity

The Year 6 students have been studying the drawing style of  Joshua Yeldham,  an Australian artist known for his fine drawing style, and using pattern and line to enhance and transform his paintings.

Joshua Yeldham’s imagery is steeped in nature. His large works range from portraying the landscape with its stunning mystical trees, to figures with a tribal aesthetic, to his iconic owls which he has famously painted and sculpted multiple times over the years, even as a self-portrait.
